You're my favourite!

Already June, my favourite month, and time for a new challenge at Penny Black at Allsorts. Brenda has set us with a great theme this month, show us your favourite PB stamp or Stickeroo! It could be a difficult task to choose just one of their lovely stamps, but remember that you can enter with three different creations per challenge, so you can actually pick your top three.

I've been cheating as I have two favourites; the butterflies are from the Butterfly Ball stamp, stamped with different ColorBox inks and chalks and cut out. The background is made with Leopards' Bane, I bought it for nothing on a sale and struggled a bit when I first used it, but it's my all time favourite.

The petrol blue backing paper was also made with a ColorBox ink to match the stamped images and the purple one is made of several scrap pieces, glued together. I used a KS corner rounder to create the scalloped edge, the yellow paper is in two pieces, but mounted to look like a paper strip. The embellies are from my stash.

We have great prizes this month, so join us with your all time PB favourites.



  1. Good Monring Maarit

    Really clever use of your PB stamps and coordinating elemens from them. A super colour choice as well, very striking.

    Coosing a favaourite is difficult and I think that sometimes a stamp grows on you as the one you used here.
